SUMMARY:In 1990, Plaintiff Jane Doe, aged 14, lived with her family in Sudan. Defendants arranged with Doe's family that she would come to the U.S. to serve as a domestic servant. In exchange for her services in the U.S., she would receive an education, be allowed to visit her parents regularly, be paid minimum wage, and be treated "like a daughter." To receive a A-3 visa, Doe's age was changed. Defendant's confiscated Doe's passport. She was prohibited from leaving the house and was forced to work long hours and was paid well below the minimum wage. Throughout her stay with the defendants, she was subject to verbal and psychological abuse. The case was settled out of court.
